Parcels from the Awatere Valley and Wairau Valley together combine to create a wine brimming with varietal character, balance and elegance. The nose is lifted and fresh with notes of passionfruit and grapefruit. The sweet fruit characters on the palate and fresh acidity combine to create an expressive, classy Sauvignon Blanc. Beautiful with barbequed seafood – especially prawns, fish, also mezze plates.
Brimming with pear drop and nutty characters, leading to flavours of stone fruit and honey. The palate is full and shows wonderful balance between fruit sweetness and acidity, with a refreshing, crisp finish. Enjoy with Asian food, chicken dishes and many light southern Italian pasta dishes.
Pied Stilt Vineyard is located on the Lower Moutere Plains near Motueka, about 45 minutes drive from Nelson City. The climate is ideal for wine grape production. The region has daily coastal sea breezes and Motueka has among the highest sunshine hours in New Zealand.
A vibrant rich wine with ripe citrus flavours, french oak influence and a lasting finish.
With a deep ruby colour and aromatic nose of plums, boysenberries, blackberries with some spicy oak notes. The palate is smooth and stylish with flavours of ripe fruit, soft tannins, oak and a long finish.
Single vineyard Chardonnay picked from organinc grapes and 90% aged in French oak barriques. A full flavoured wine displaying notes of toasted almond and apple pie with a smooth, creamy palate supported by good acidity and a long, powerful finish. Truly a chardonnay lover's chardonnay! This wine is drinking beautifully now and will continue to improve in the bottle.

An outstanding example of Nelson Pinot Noir.
Dark, deep, youthful, black hued and ruby-red in colour. The wine has a deep black berry and plum fruited bouquet that is fresh and vibrantly expressed. On the palate, medium-light bodied with 14% alcohol. Very nice vibrant black berry fruit and dark plum flavours. The tannin extraction is moderate and provides a soft, supple and smooth texture allowing immediate enjoyment.
One of our most well supported Pinot Noirs. Unrivaled in New Zealand at this price.
Amazing Hawkes Bay Merlot from the Cellar 9 team. This is a young wine but clearly shows already what a great vintage 2013 has been for the Hawkes Bay. This is a medium weight Merlot which will develop well in the bottle from here. The wine exhibits dark forest fruits with a lovely oak background. Easily drunk on its own or match with red meats and pasta dishes.
Huge savings on this delicious Nelson Gewurztraminer.
Nelson has a reputation as the home of aromatic wines in New Zealand and this wine is perfect testament to that. A highly scented, fragrant wine with lovely weight and intensity of rose petals, ginger & lychee followed with a luscious palate and a smooth, lasting finish.
A true aromatic wine witch matches perfectly with Asian dishes or blue cheese & spiced figs. Perfect for your local Asian BYO restaurant.
16+ Points - Raymond Chan "This has a fresh nose with gently concentrated aromas of white stonefruits, honesuckle and apricot kernels, still to unfold more interest. Off-dry to taste and light-bodied, clean and soft flavours of stonefruits and honey show on the front palate. The mouthfeel is balanced with soft acidity and the residual sugar, and the wine is harmonious in texture." Raymond Chan
Nelson is fast becoming the "home" of New Zealand aromatic wines. This single vineyard Pinot Gris is a delicious example of how good they are.
